Jack and Family - We loved Pat! Wonderful neighbor and friend for many years on Belridge Rd. When I think of her, I just picture her smiling and laughing at whatever the topic of conversation was. She will forever be part of our family and memories of raising our kids in Cheshire. Our hearts go out to you.

Pat and Jack were the first to welcome us to Belridge Rd when we moved in in 1994 and became family when we didn't have any close by. I will always cherish those days when our children were little and Pat was always there to listen and offer advice. Wonderful neighbors!!! Belridge Road lost a great friend on December 24th. Thinking of all of you, especially Jack at this difficult time and sending our love.

Anita and Joe send sincerest condolences to Pat's family. We are saddened by her passing.

We have many fond memories of good times together, playing cards, dinners at home and at local restaurants. Anita and Pat shared a love of reading and belonged to the same book club. Interestingly, we were married in the same year, 1962, and celebrated our wedding receptions at the same venue, the Hampshire House on Beacon Hill.

Pat was a wonderful part of our lives and will be sorely missed.
